Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said Umno was too busy planning and implementing social and economic development programmes and so on that it did not have time to spend on trivial matters and the personal issues of opposition leaders.
“Don’t be too quick to point the finger at Umno each time there’s a sex scandal involving their (opposition) leader. They should instead first seek confirmation or explanation on the matter from the leader allegedly involved in the scandal.”
He said this when asked to comment on the circulation of a video of a man resembling PAS secretary-general Mustafa Ali having sex with an unknown woman in what looked like a hotel room, and Umno has been accused by PAS leaders of being behind this.
Ismail had earlier given out garbage bins to be distributed to 322 households in Taman Kerayong Jaya, here, today.
He said with the general election approaching, the opposition leaders would always blame the Barisan Nasional government over various issues, including their own alleged sex scandals.
Hadi: It is not Mustafa
Meanwhile in KOTA SAMARAHAN, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang insisted that Mustafa Ali was not involved in the sex video recording spread in the internet.
He said he did not believe the PAS secretary-general was capable of doing the video act because for the past few years, Mustafa performed his prayers while sitting down.
“Those who made the recording were not aware that for the past few years Mustafa performed his prayers while sitting on a chair because his knees were aching…even going down the stairs was painful (for him)…go an find someone strong and not like what was shown in the recording,” he said.
He disclosed this to reporters when asked to comment on the sex video issue concerning a man who is said to look like the PAS secretary-general, here today.
